Last weekend we crossed an item off our Fall bucket list and took our kids to our favorite pumpkin patch. The kids had a blast; the adults had a blast. Pumpkins were picked. Fun was had. It was a good day. If you find yourself in Southeast Missouri in October, you should visit Beggs Family Farm. We’ve been to a few different pumpkin patch farms, but we keep coming back to Beggs.
We had a long, hard summer of transition, working on the house, and catching up on homeschool lessons after our move last spring. However, we are trying very hard to take opportunities to make some memories this fall. It may be halfway through October, but I created a Fall Bucket List poster for us. I can’t wait to cross a few more items off our list this week!
Toward the end of last year I realized I have way too many notebooks in use at one time. I have one for everything in my life: one for budgeting and bills, one for lesson plans, one for recipes and meal planning, one for each Bible study I’m currently doing, one for to-do lists, one for being creative (ok, maybe two or three for that). Along with all of those, I also have a daily/weekly planner. Something had to give, so I decided to design my own planner/home management binder to at least cut down on the number of times in one week I go hunting for one notebook or another.
Last night I was playing around with my lesson plans pages and decided to share one here. Subjects can be written in the first column, and my copy has my boys’ names in the two top rectangles. The subject lines that are divided are for the subjects they work separately on -math, reading, and handwriting in our case.
